It’s fairly a sorry state of events when a company like BlackBerry – – a major gamer in the smartphone sector only a few years ago – – should resort to taking cheap gos at the market leaders in order to buying itself some heading coverage. The demise of the Canadian attire has been well documented in recent times, and with its market share having dropped to the point where Windows Phone has simply surpassed it, numerous of BlackBerry’s head boss have succumbed a leading reshuffle. John Chen recently switched out Thorsten Heins as CEO, however rather than teeming with new ideas concerning how BlackBerry can turn its lot of moneys about, he has as an alternative started his occupation by labeling iPhone individuals as “”wall-huggers”
.” In making his assertion, Chen had not been – – as I initially presumed – – describing the reality that mobile phone individuals could often be viewed standing versus a wall surface, entirely consumed by their smartphones at social gatherings. He was, rather, taking a pop at the Cupertino handset’s poor electric battery retention, but nevertheless, it’s not likely that anybody at Apple – – or wielding an iPhone, for that concern – – will certainly be as well concerned concerning what Chen thinks.
As an iPhone individual of several years, I can personally verify the truth that the battery is not its best attribute, however with swathes of wonderful apps, a fine-tuned, thriving ecological community and a create quality that only the HTC One has actually come close to tough, it’s not a fluke that the iPhone is the biggest-selling high-end smartphone on the marketplace.
Every report concerning BlackBerry seems to have some sort of negative connotation connected, and Chen’s beliefs will, if anything, just draw further ridicule. Fiercely devoted to the qwerty key-board kind factor, which, as it comes about, consumers are not all that troubled concerning, BlackBerry is now paying for not complying with the lead of iOS and Android, and with Windows Phone – – a system that has had battles of its very own – – now ahead of the BlackBerry OS in regards to market share, Chen plannings to have jumped aboard a sinking ship.
Still, as a small fish in a big pool, BlackBerry will possibly be taking many additional digs at its competitors as it experiences the huge activity of trying to re-establish itself as something greater than an invested pressure.
